Your Attendance and Support is Needed 11/6/08!

California Place Park Design Workshop #1 will be held on November 6 from 6-8pm at Hiawatha Community Center

This meeting is sponsored by Seattle Parks and Recreation – they will lead a site analysis workshop and are asking for community input as to the future of the Park (what best fits the community) as well as the triangle shaped property bordering SW Hill and 45th Ave SW.

This is a critical meeting if we want to forward the enhancement to the Park – it is an extra meeting early in the planning process for the Park Department to hear all community support and concerns – if you support this project this is the best opportunity to be heard by Parks. Parks will be listening to both support and opposition during this two hour meeting.

Three design workshop meetings will follow this initial meeting, dates tbd. Notices have gone via mail to approximately 2,000 households in the general area regarding the November 6 meeting – please come and be heard.

If you cannot attend the meeting, please send an email of support to: and we will make sure your voice is heard.

Status update: We have received our contract from the Department of Neighborhoods thanks to all your support – they received over 40 emails of support for this project and now we are really on our way. Once all our signatures on the contract are in place we will be able to begin the search for our landscape architect who will then lead our design process. Thank you!
